Natural Hair Inspiration | Esther Tom

Hi Naturalistas,
Meet Esther Tom and her lovely mane


Her name is Esther Otomi. A Nigerian from Delta state, lover of art and Rock 'n Roll, poetry, and all things Citrus! She's also a photographer, an M.A. student of Media studies, an aspiring academic Doctor and most recently, a professional natural hair stylist and owner of Game of 'FROs Natural Hair Hub, Calabar.

For her, going natural was by accident. In her own words 'Natural hair for me started by accident. I've been big chopping my whole life (oh and I didn't know it as "big chop"). I experienced numerous scalp burns and then after my NYSC, I did one last chop, 5th of june 2013 and I let the hair be.'

Her favourite products and accesories are African Pride Dream Kids Leave in Conditioner, Virgin Hair Fertilizer, Shea butter and Booby pins (a lot of them).
Don't you just love the colour

Her go-to style is a Roll, Tuck and Pin or High Puff.
I love this...gosh

Her advice to those contemplating to go natural - don't sit and expect people to spoon feed you on what and what not to do or by. Google and YouTube are about the best resource archives you can get. Research and experiment. What works for A may not work for B.

Don't you just love how she styles her hair.
She was featured sometime last year on Mane matters. Read up here and don't forget to leave a comment
